Life analysis and the staging of his own fantasies are Noël Herpe’s subject matter in his work as a writer and a film-maker. Following up on a book about his relationship with his father, his mother is invited beside him for a double portrait on the double couch installed in front of Arthur Dreyfus’s camera. Much unpacking, misunderstandings, denials and declarations: this boulevard theatre of intimacy is as moving as it is fascinating thanks to both protagonists’ ability in saying everything and telling each other everything about their passionate relationship.
